Also, please note, this park will require all who enter to pay a certain cash fee to enter the park. That fee will be good for the entire weekend. State Park Passes are honored at this park for Special Event Weekends. Tejas Trails does not keep any of this money. Even though it's a requirement, please consider it a cool way to support an amazing Texas Park, and the park's staff to maintain a very special set of trails!
Known as the perfect trail running course for veteran runners wanting a 100mile P.R., as well as the perfect race for rookie ultra runners wanting a good setup to accomplish their goal. Expect frequent and incredible aid station support all day and night. Generous cut-offs. A fun atmosphere for family, friends, and awaiting crew members with 5 x 20mile beautiful loops around the lake, over wooden bridges, and through the tall pines. Gently undulating trails on a bed of pine needles. Don't let the name fool you, you don't have to worry about rocks on this course, but keep your eyes on the tree roots grabbing at your feet.
